I wish everyday could be like today. Thanks to a 2-hour delay, I got up at 6, did an hour of exercise, played around on SparkPeople, checked my email & Facebook all before I had to wake the first child. Ahhh. Nice. It's a great way to ease into a new week.
I am restarting week 3 of the 28 day challenge. I feel like I'd be cheating if I moved on.
I also found out this weekend that there are semi-local zumba classes twice a week for $5 for an hour. I'm thinking about starting but am not sure of a few things. First and foremost - I have NO grace or rhythm. I'd probably look like a baboon having seizures. Secondly, I am a morning exerciser. I like to get it out of the way. What if I skip my morning exercise & then the day gets goofed up OR it starts snowing & the roads get bad and I can't get to the class???? Ugh. Decisions. Maybe I'll wait till March when the weather is a little better. Dunno.
Secretly, I love watching dancing. I admire a strong, lean dancer's body. I want that. I want to be graceful and light. I realize that to become what I imagine in my head, I have to step out of my comfort zone. I am such an introvert. I've never danced in front of others (sober, lol.) I'm torn. I am reminded a quote:
"We can't become what we need by remaining what we are." ~ Max Dupree
I found that quote here on SP and I really like the message. I suppose - best case scenario is that I love the class, lose weight & get fit. Worse case scenario is that I love it, have fun & maybe even crack a smile. OK-I'll definitely check out the class but I will probably wait till a little closer to spring. The weather is still too unpredictable.
